So...if I'm going to migrate off GitHub, I have choices. I could self-host (on Dreamhost, my go-to provider, or maybe SDF). Or I could use something like Sourcehut. My projects aren't very big or heavy in traffic. Curious what folx on Fedi have tried and found useful.

@roadriverrail I've been a big fan of GitLab for a long time since they have a self-hosting option and are open source for the core product (which is *a lot* of it).

@hankg Yeah, I know a lot of people use and like Gitlab, and it's on the list I'm considering. Curious if there are advantages/costs to self-hosting there? I want to keep my maintenance overhead low but also have good longevity in my service.

@roadriverrail I have more than I need in their free tier. I used to subscribe to one step up just to throw some cash at them but they changed their pricing structure such that the lowest tier of that is too high for me now. I'd say don't bother with self hosting for now since self hosted instances can always import projects from gitlab.com to your self hosted instance (and vice versa): docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/projec…
